Tooradin - Dolphin Fish

72 BIG Fish from the 2006 Commonwealth Games | Dolphin Fish

One of seventy-two large aquatic sea creatures created by MotherWorks for the opening ceremony of the 2006 Commonwealth Games. 

For every country that competed in the Games an aquatic sea creature, native to that country was created and floated across 36 barges down the Yarra River in an amazing sound and light display

After the Commonwealth Games concluded 62 of the sculptures were offered to councils through out Victoria to boost tourism. Many of the sculptures found permanent homes and sadly, since the sculptures weren't designed for the outdoor elements, between the Yarra River and councils placing them outdoors, many sculptures perished.

The Dolphin Fish is perhaps one of the more well known Fish due to its placement. Tooradin have placed their Tourism fish on the 
Gippsland Hwy. It's easier to park at the United Petroleum and walk over. The Dolphin Fish is native to Malta.
